The Actors Centre

Assembling a Reel for Video Games

WHAT IS IT? Ever wanted to enter the voiceover video games industry but not sure where to start? This workshop will give you the tools you need to prepare for recording your games reel and for working in this exciting, high-opportunity world. HOW WILL IT WORK? Using practical exercises and exciting equipment including a gun and Rode mic, this workshop is tailored to the group’s needs and aims. We will warm-up to build vocal support through your range before beginning to learn a daily vocal routine to strengthen your voice. We will work through a range of game scripts and genres, and you will learn to take quick direction, and also use the limited but specific direction a game script provides. We will focus on mic technique clarity and being believable. Finally you will learn how to retract and shout safely – in the games world you may be required to do this for two hours in a session. Think about three characters and accents from the video games world you could play realistically and what your inner beast sounds like, ie the joker, mad scientist, boffin, superhero. Watch some Destiny Gameplay and Lara Croft to get to know the medium. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? Develop solid mic technique and focus on supporting the voice while playing with accents and characters. Be confident reading a games script and responding to client direction. Have the tools to build a shout regime and grunt safely without damaging your voice. Receive advice and marketing tools to help you break into this exciting industry. Price: £45.
